Hulu.com and many other sites don't work on Smart TVs.

The short answer is it is not supported because there is no PC in the TV.

chris418,

Bob is correct yet again. The browser isn't meant for heavy usage.

Additionally, the servers of some website will block TV browsers. The reasons for them doing so are numerous, and I'll let Bob elaborate if he feels like.

I love the HD. Don't do much 3D but, as you said, was sold I could watch TV shows through the SmartHub. Very disappointed. Thanks for the feed back it was driving me nuts trying to figure it out.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
